AVL Sewing is tucked away in a warehouse district of North Dallas. While the shop cranks out dozens and sometimes hundreds of costumes and uniforms, it is a place the public knows Little about.

AVL Sewing is made up of two co-owners with near 60 years of experience between them, Cathy Langley and Martha Vela.

"Our specialty is doing dance wear, costumes and swimsuits" said Cathy Langley.

Because of their specialty the women who spend hours a day sewing use stretch fabrics, sequin and glitz as their tools of choice.
